Google on Sunday, July 18 celebrated the life and work of Dr. Kadambini Ganguly, the first woman to be trained as a physician in India.

She was also the first woman to get admission to Calcutta Medical College, from which she graduated in 1886.

Today’s Google Doodle has been illustrated by Bengaluru- based guest artist Oddrija. It marks the occasion of Ganguly’s 160th birthday and sheds light on her exemplary work to uplift Indian women throughout the country.

She worked through both medical service and activism in India’s women’s rights movement. She was also one of the six women to form the first all-women delegation of the 1889 Indian National Congress.

After getting a medical degree, Ganguly went on to pursue three additional doctoral certifications with a specialization in gynecology, a rarity for women in that era.

In the 1890s, she returned to India to start her own private clinic.
